Guardiola rules out Premier League - for now

BY foxsports • April 29, 2012

Departing Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola says England's Premier League could be his next destination as manager, although it won't come next season.

Guardiola, who will step down at the end of the season, said after Sunday's 7-0 win at Rayo Vallecano that coaching in England is something of interest ''maybe in the future, but now I'm going to rest, I'm not going to coach next season.''

Guardiola says ''I don't know if some of the England teams want me, but maybe in the future.''

The 41-year-old Catalan coach blamed burnout for his decision to leave after four seasons - the most successful in the club's history. However, Barcelona will probably now surrender its Spanish league crown to Real Madrid, after failing to reach the Champions League final.
